GIVING AND FINANCES

We believe that giving should be free of pressure cheerful with a sense of together for the mutual benefit of one another. And because we do not raise money to support buildings, staff and programs; we focus our giving on supporting the needs of one another. There may be opportunities give offerings to support various issues both within and outside that we as a church feel  called to support as a body; but you should always do so freely and without compulsion, fear, or a sense of necessity.
